thoughts on this. republicans -- send us a tweet @cspanwj. you can also e-mail us, journal@c-span.org. we will begin with josh rogan who broke the story. he is our senior correspondent on the phone. is headline in your piece the obama administration secretly suspended military aid to egypt. how did you find this out? the primary source was senator patrick leahy, he is the chairman of the state and foreign appropriations subcommittee. i asked a lot of people what was going on with this $1.3 billion of u.s. military aid to egypt. their understanding was that it had been halted. i investigated a little bit further and what i found was that the administration's review of military aid is ongoing. they are going through a broad review of the entire u.s. egypt relationship. they decided not to disburse most forms of the military aid, with some exceptions this was a -- with some to exceptions. despite the fact that the administration is determined that -- if that sounds at the mouthful, it is because it is. where's the money in the process? and what impact will it have? administration public line

find most incredible about his story? how commonplace it is. everyone of us here has a story just like that, whether it is us or our parents or great grandparents. we are all the children of those who risked everything. for freedom. us could walk up here one at a time and tell those stories. i am going to suggest that is the most fundamental dna of what it means to be an american, to value freedom and opportunity above all else. that is why we are going to succeed in turning this around. say,inal thing i want to if you remember nothing that i said tonight, then you probably had too much to drink. [laughter] if you remember one thing that i said tonight, let it be this. as dire as things look right now, i am profoundly optimistic. we have seen things look dire before. i am optimistic for three simple reasons. number one, we are right. freedom works. [applause] there is a very simple dynamic, conservatives win when we effectively articulate what it is we believe. this is fundamentally a center- right nation. liberals win when they effectively off the skate -- obduscate what they believe.
lot of things bush did, it is reflecting the political reality. the question for us in this us as americans, is to say, it is kind of bleak to think the united states will have to operate drones and have shady partnerships in places like yemen. it is hard work. it does not necessarily would we be willing to accept a certain inevitability as i think europeans in the 1970's accepted that there will be terrorist attacks from time to time and it's not the end of the world. this is what i think janet knap when she was department of homeland security, when she was in charge of the department of homeland security, talked about he idea of resilience. we're beginning to see some people sighing that they don't like drones either. and so we haven't really been able -- i think that the side that wants to talk about scaling back the war on terrorism at this point should also talk about the idea that it's not a false choice to quote obama from the national archives speech between liberty and security. it's a very real choice. and we should be coming to terms with that. >> i think liberty vs.
